GETPlugged: Chris “Birdman” Anderson In Trouble Over Child Porn

Wonder where Chris “Birdman” Anderson disappeared to after Game 5 of the Nuggets vs Lakers game earlier this month? Well, it looks like he’s been excused from the Denver Nuggets indefinitely due to an internet crime against children investigation.

According to NY Daily News

Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman Ron Hanavan confirmed that the search took place. Andersen has not been arrested and Hanavan said no arrest warrant has been issued.

The department began investigating Andersen in February after receiving information from a law enforcement agency in California. Hanavan declined to release details, including the nature of any pending charges, citing an ongoing investigation. He said they’re asking that the case, including the search warrant, be sealed.

Andersen answered the door at his Larkspur, Colo., home, about 40 miles south of Denver, and let deputies in, said Deborah Sherman, another sheriff’s spokesperson.

“He did cooperate. He spoke with deputies,” Sherman said.

The unit investigating Andersen investigates child porn, Internet luring, child predators and child pornography.
The sheriff’s office said it recovered property from Andersen’s home that investigators believe is connected with the case. Sherman said items typically seized by the unit include computers, hard drives, and thumb drives, though she said she could not provide details on what items were seized from Andersen’s home, citing the ongoing investigation.

An arrest is not imminentSherman said, saying that it typically takes several weeks to a month for investigators to collect evidence from the seized items.

Andersen maintains his innocence and climbs that this is a case of groupie extortion. Andersen says in 2010 a female fan, whom he was told was 21 years old, sent him many letters and risqué photos of herself. The two of them continued to communicate and in 2011 the female fan flew out to Colorado to see him. After Andersen showed lack of interest (see: hit it and quit it), the woman became upset and threatened to retaliate if he didn’t pay her. Well, he didn’t pay her and “supposedly” she’s under age. Well, that’s Andersen’s story anyway. 

I don’t know, I kind of believe Andersen here.
